Channing Tatum hasn't been shy about showing off his ripped physique in recent months. Last September, the 41-year-old actor posed for a black and white mirror selfie that put his shredded abs clear on display.
Yesterday, he followed up with some insight into how he’s managed to stay in shape ever since, publishing a video to Instagram that showed him emerging from the water after a tough beach workout. Following what he says was a two-mile swim, he wrote, "Nothing yet has been more suffocating and exhausting and effective than freestyle wrestling or open ocean water swimming."
But it turns out Tatum saved the most memorable reveal for this afternoon, when he posted yet another selfie—this time to his Instagram Stories—from the set of Lost City of D that leaves, well, absolutely nothing to the imagination. "You know when you in the make-up trailer asshole naked holding a towel over your junk, you about to do some shit on set that you gonna have to prepare ya mamma for before she see the movie," he captioned the photo. In case it wasn't clear, he added, "And yes, I'm flexing so hard I got a cramp."
What's less clear is which scene Tatum is alluding to, but the upcoming film—an action-comedy-romance slated for 2022—is described as the story of "a reclusive romance novelist on a book tour with her cover model" who "gets swept up in a kidnapping attempt that lands them them both in a cutthroat jungle adventure."
In the meantime, Tatum may soon have some company when it comes to stripping down: The 21 Jump Street star recently announced that he will be producing a Magic Mike-themed reality show for HBO Max set to air later in 2021. The series will reportedly feature 10 men who have "lost their magic" and will compete for a cash prize and a chance to perform at the Magic Mike Live stage show in Las Vegas.
If nothing else, those brave men now have the perfect "after" shot to help keep them motivated.
